Winemaker Notes

The 2010 Chardonnay opens with enticing sweet pear, white peach, golden apple and bright citrus aromas, supported by vanilla and mineral scents. On the mouth-filling palate, creamy apple, peach, melon and lime flavors lead to a long, rich finish buoyed by refreshing mineral tones.

Boasting superb structure and lush varietal flavors, this deeply satisfying Chardonnay is delicious now, both on its own and with a broad range of seafood, poultry and vegetarian dishes.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

This shows an evident layer of oak in the form of buttered toast and vanilla notes, but the underlying wine is strong in pineapple and golden mango flavors. Fine coastal acidity and a hint of mineral provide structural balance.

The 2010 Chardonnay shows the richer, tropical fruit side of Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay in its voluptuous notes of mango, butter, sweet spices and lychee. This soft, impeccable wine boasts superb balance and tons of class. Even better, it is a fabulous wine for the money. The Chardonnay was fermented 60% in steel and 40% in oak, then spent eleven months in French oak barrels.
